Tottenham captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris hopes that 2019 will be the year where they finally claim some silverware
Since manager Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival in 2014, Spurs have grown into regular top-four finishers in the Premier League and they’ve reached the Champions League knockout stages for the past two seasons.
However, Spurs haven’t won a trophy since their EFL Cup triumph over Chelsea in February 2008 – who they will face in the semi-finals of the same competition next month.
Lloris, who captained France to the 2018 World Cup title in the summer, is hoping to change that come to the end of the season.
“This [winning silverware] is what we work for,” said Lloris, according to Daily Mirror.
“We know we are in the Premier League and there are a lot of contenders, big teams, big players, and that is why we are excited to be here.
“We are in the most competitive country, so we keep working with the same mentality and do our best.
“We have shown in the past that Tottenham is very competitive and we are reducing the gap with the best.”
Spurs, who dropped to third and nine points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool after a shock 3-1 home defeat to Wolves, will meet Cardiff City on Tuesday.
